Tourism increases fuel $50M more in direct spending

Deputy Premier and Tourism Minister Moses Kirkconnell told Cayman 27 a three-year trend of increases in air and sea arrivals is boosting the economy.

He said Cayman can expect around 50,000 more air arrivals and 400,000 more cruise arrivals over 2013’s tourism totals. He says that translates to 50 million dollars in additional direct spending.

“We are extremely pleased with the success we’ve had with that, but the challenge that we have is to make sure we take that success and make sure the Caymanian people share in it,” said Mr. Kirkconnell.

He said that’s where programmes like the School of Hospitality Studies and scholarship partnerships come in to play.
